Teaching with Technology Workshops

New Media-Ready Learning Spaces!

The first workshop will be on Tuesday, September 17 from 4 to 5 pm in the Instructional Lab. We’ll learn about WeVideo and Google Drive.

The Ball Living Learning Classroom has been redesigned featuring 3 displays; 2 mirrored projectors and 1 flat screen monitor with the option of mirroring. It also has a new wall-mounted Skype webcam with microphones and speakers, BYOD flexibility, HDMI and composite video options, Mac mini home computer and Apple TV.

Apps We Love

We’re still in love with Evernote because of its organizing capabilities and it syncs between your computer and mobile devices. Access anywhere, remember everything! Evernote.com

Mobile devices = digital photography. Apps like Hipstamatic and Camera+ take photos for a creative spin… Hipstamatic.com, campl.us/
